This restaurant is perhaps the best in Phoenix. The service is simply magnificent, the menu selections well suited and of course the scenic views just breathtaking. I strongly recommend you make an effort to visit for dinner sometime.

Very pushy waiter. If you don't eat fish or seafood, then special menu doesn't work very well. Seemed anxious to get us out of there.

Once again we've enjoyed our total experience at the Different Point of View. As always the food is outstanding, service prompt, courteous, amicable and informative. The view is one of the best in Phoenix, especially at sunset. The pacing of the meal is appropriate while the portions filing. It's no wonder this restaurant has won numerous awards over the years and is able to maintain its reputation as one of the go to spots for great dining at a good price. Well worth every visit we've made and those we've yet to make.

From the service, food, view, and wine - everything was outstanding. Greeted with multiple smiles, and served by at least three waiters; the experience was welcomed and left us wanting more. The sommelier's choice of wine was spectacular - an excellent choice.

Amazing experience! We went here to celebrate our anniversary and had a wonderful time. The food was out of this world and the ambiance was wonderful! The staff provided great service and made it a great night. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a special night out!

Hello. Of all the restaurant my Lady [wife] had to choose from I decided this one. Moving from Vegas to Arizona we had to find the right ones. The place is very good and so is the scenic view. THE one BIG problem was what I paid for WAS not right...my Ladies was right. I ordered a fish menu and while eating it ABOUT three quarter way thru it I COULD NOT eat it anymore...the reason was the fish had two sharp bones. When I was chewing my food I had to take the bone out of my mouth twice. I called the server twice about it, he took it BUT did nothing about it. Legally this is not right. ALSO I am disable and I walk with a cane. While walking down the step in the parking lot...1. uneven steps...2. NO RAILINGS...3. woman in front of me fell and the rock ripped her pants...3. I and my wife stumbled to.

By far my favorite dining experience in AZ. I thoroughly enjoy the chefs creativity and execution. Every dish I've had in this restaurant has been excellent. From the pork belly appetizer to the lamb meat course, it was five courses of pure amazing. Add to that the beautiful wine pairings. Our party left the restaurant TOTALLY SATISFIED

An Evening in Phoenix
Celebrated our friend's birthday and an evening with our ASU Junior grandson at this fabulous restaurant. It was perfect - great views, service and food! Our grandson said it was his best meal ever - not easy to wow a 21 year old grandson! The only negative was a large noisy group seated nearby. The manager did speak to them for us and things quieted down a bit. The best he could do, and we appreciated that. Would go back in a heartbeat!
Wonderful dining experience
We love the view from A Different Point of View. We watched Phoenix downtown as the sun set and the lights came on in the city. We were totally pampered by the wait staff. The food was outstanding as always. This restaurant has it all - view, service, and excellent food.

Another successful Restaurant Week
Different Pointe of View continues to provide a wonderful and memorable dining experience. A great way to celebrate a birthday with delicious food and romantic ambiance. Service was stellar and the views are amazing.
Fabulous during Spring Restaurant Week
Easy booking on Open Table. Requested a table next to the window and got it, however, the tables are on different levels making the view incredible from every table. 4 girls out enjoying Restaurant Week pricing. From walking in, we were greeted enthusiastically by every wait person we passed. We all ordered the price fix, and the lobster bisque was very elegant, highly recommend! We all chose to order the Chef Special fish which was an incredible large filet of fresh grilled halibut served with grilled baby artichokes, several chunks of lobster claw meat, served over a brown rice, topped with a lobster reduction. None of us could finish it all...we had had a lengthy cocktail hour, and we talked the next day about how great tasting our leftovers were! Creme Brûlée with fresh berries was awesome! At 1800' elevation, the view across the valley and of downtown was magical at 5:30, sunset at 7:30 incredible with the city lights, and after dinner we went to the outside terrace for after dinner drinks surrounded by torch lights and a beautiful veranda. The restaurant was elegant and quiet enough but with the great weather this week, will consider eating outside next visit.
must see and dine
Waiter was Richard - he set the tone for the evening - he as funny, informative, engaging when necessary and made for a great evening. Food is amzing - what ever you get you will enjoy

Beautiful view that's amazing as well as great service and food!
Exceptional view and food
Set atop a steep driveway, this gem looks out over the Phoenix valley. Floor to ceiling glass. makes all inside tables view friendly and the multi tiered outside stone balcony offers jaw dropping vistas. Arrive an hour before sunset to enjoy both day and night images. The food is equally spectacular with quiet efficient and immediate service. Everything we tried was excellent and the dessert options were wonderful. Smaller but full of rich vibrant flavors blended tog.ether in unique ways After dinner walk down a level to the lounge and sit by the fires and waterfalls on the patio. Watch the cars in traffic below and enjoy being above it all. Don't drink too much because the drive down seems even steeper. TIP - walk around the right side of the entrance to reach the elevator (located in the below ground wine cellar) other wise it is a four story climb to the restaurant.
Dinner with a great view
Took some friends for a nice dinner. This is one of the better fine restaurants in the metro area from our experience. Food is great, service great, cant top the views, especially sunset.

Very nice to take special out of town guests to -- the view of the valley is amazing. It was incredibly loud though, so my husband could hear little of the table talk.
One of our favorites
Different Point of View has such tasty food and great service. The view is amazing from any seat in the restaurant. They have great specials all year. We always go to DPOV whenever we get the chance. Great wine selection as well.

We booked the restaurant for an anniversary dinner. I booked it about a week in advance and yet, they could not promise a window table. That is reserved for the 6pm diners I was told. (We had a reservation at 6:30pm) Our service was rushed. I was asked three times if they could take my plate. And unfortunately I pretty much can let things go if the food is outstanding, but it wasn't. We have so many really good, and I mean good, restaurants in Scottsdale/ Phoenix area, that if the food is not outstanding, I will not go back. They have a lovely view, but the overall experience was not good, and the food did not help the matter. We will not return.

Fantastic view into downtown Phoenix. The lobster bisque appetizer was fantastic. The rest of the meal (entrees and desserts) were good but not outstanding. It is a fun date location but not necessarily a place I'm eager to dine in again anytime soon.
Great view and food.
A Different Pointe of View was at a Devoured event that we attended 3 years ago, and we decided to eat at the restaurant for restaurant week. It was delicious! The lobster bisque, berry salad, halibut, short ribs, and dessert were divine! Service was excellent and attentive.

So far I have never had a dinner that I didn't like. The presentation is excellent and the taste awesome. I recommend an advance reservation before sunset and ask for Ian to be your server. You can't go wrong.

The food was outstanding. The views were great. Our server was very knowledgeable and friendly. The only negative aspect was the server seemed like he had too many tables and it took a while for him to return to us. We waited over 10 minutes or our check. We would definitely return.

We went early and sat outside the bar having an appetizer and a drink while taking in the view of the city. Food was outstanding and I'll be on sweat is just what we wanted for our anniversary night.

One of the best meals of my entire life, that's not hyperbole. Probably helped that my date is my dream girl.
From Sunrise to Sunset view birthday party
May 10-2016 was my wife birthday. After we enjoyed a fantastic sunrise view flying over the sonora desert in a hot air balloon i decide to take her out for diner at yhe different point of view. We both loved this restaurant. It was a place where we got all our expectatives. I was making sure that she feels as she was my real queen seated down on her troon next to her prince enjoying a awesome sunset and city light views but combine with a fantastic and delicious diner in restaurant. Thank you Larry for your excellent servive and congatulations to chef for his or her delicious food. We can't wait tocome back for our wedding anniversary in August.

The food did not excite me. Too expensive for such a let down. The dining room was nice but the bar looked more enjoyable. The scenery was spectacular and difinetly worth it after dark to view the city lights.
